Just getting started "officially" this year. Saturday before last my ad came out in "Dial a Professional", $122. for 3 lines, for 30 days. I put company name, two local city names i prefer to work in ( Servicing Brandon/Pearl area) and my phone number. So far I have 7 weekly accounts, and three one time jobs, weeding large flower beds and mowing jobs. I have two more to bid tomorrow. I now know I bit too low on at least two of my accounts, because after the first mow, they came and and told me so, and said they were paying me $10 more. You can say what you want to about not letting the customer decide the price, but I dont mind it in these two instances. Four of my new customers asked for cards, want to help me get more business!!!!!! If things keep going like this, I will have to go full time by June, and get to quit my Home Cheapo job. It will be tough to quit though, its nice to know I will have a check every week. I do plan on bidding more carefully from now on.
